    Mitchell Hooks - Original Paperback Cover Art (1971). Mitchell Hooks is a respected and talented illustrator whose work has appeared in numerous areas of the commercial art field. Though he has been published in a number of the national magazines, he is probably best known for his many memorable paperback covers painted for such publishers as Bantam, Avon, Dell, Signet, and Gold Medal. This painting was published as Bantam #N5792 - The Unfinished Clue, by Georgette Hyer. It is rendered in gouache on board and measures approximately 24 x 14. Mitchell Hooks is credited, along with the book title, on the back of the board. There is water damage affecting the bottom 3 inches of the board, which does not detract from the primary image, and could easily be matted out.
